Property description

If you are looking for a private, relaxing vacation getaway, Xcalak is the place for you. Located on Costa Maya's southern most tip, Xcalak is in the last undeveloped area of the Yucatan Coast. Whether you are interested in World Class Diving on the nearby Chinchorro Banks, bonefishing on the Chetumal Bay flats , great snorkeling right in front of our beach or just enjoying the varied wildlife, the area is a nature lovers delight. Located on the Mexican Caribbean 7.8 kilometers north of Xcalak, the house's upper unit has a fully equipped kitchen, a Queen bedroom with a King bed (which can be separate in 2 single beds), a beautifully tiled bath and living room with TV. The dining room (seats 6) has a thatched roof which opens on to a beautiful terrace. A large master bedroom with it’s own personal bathroom and patio has been added to the apartment. It features a king bed which can become 2 separate single beds and a single futon. Facing the sea, one accesses the beach patio by a slider. You can also enter the room via a spacious breezeway with queen bed.

The house's environment: Besides being a beachfront property, behind the house's garden, there is a lake (laguna) which is great for kayaking and fishing. Theses 'lagunas' are home to many different species both aquatic (bonefish, baby tarpon, ...) and land (birds, small crocodiles, ...). The Xcalak area is know for its flyfishing and generally for fishing. It is also a superbe area for diving with its great barrier reef and with 'Banco Chinchorro', an atoll 2 1/2 hours away by boat. The island of San Pedro, Belize is only a 1 1/2 hour boat ride away and makes an interesting day trip as does Mahahual , a town 60 km north of Xcalak. Finally the Mayan ruins of Chaccoben are only 2 hours away.

Further information: The house is located in a marine park. Upon arrival, please stop at XTC Dive Centre to purchase your entry bracelet. XTC is found on the beach road to your left when leaving Xcalak.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Philippe is French and Gisele is Canadian. They work in France in the entertainment business doing cultural shows.

Why the Owner Chose Xcalak, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
We chose to buy in Xcalak and more particularly Casa Caracola because the snorkelling is fantastic right off the beach in front of the house. There are many coral heads there and the reef is not for off.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Philippe loves the sea and they both spend much of their time doing water activities such as snorkelling and free diving. The other positive point is that the area is very peaceful and relaxing. It is truly a unique and authentic spot.
